Pre-requisites: Students MUST be able to read and copy basic words and sentences from the board. They do not need to be able to read the chapter books on their own. However, in class, some of the work will require them to write.
Supplies: Besides access to the books listed above, students need to have a 3-ring binder to store their work in. They will need to bring it to class each week, so we can add new work. I will provide all other materials, including pencils, crayons, scissors and glue.
Course Description. Books are a magical portal to other places. When you read, you are transported to other places and meet many new and exotic friends. Let's join Jack and Annie as they travel through time and space to many enchanting places with the help of the Magic Tree house!
We will use the Magic Tree house series as a jumping off point to learn about different cultures, countries, time periods and animals. There will be a little history, science, social studies, geography and art incorporated in the studies. Little to no outside work, except reading will be expected. Occasionally a project may be sent home for completion.
